Man Live Streams Video Of Himself ‘Moments After Killing Wife’
A Syrian man living in Germany broadcast himself on Facebook Live moments after murdering his wife.
The man – who refers to himself as Abu Marwan, 41, in the video – reportedly stabbed his 37-year-old wife four or five times in the neck before running away with one of their children.
In the shocking video, he can be seen with blood on his face and a cut on his hand as he speaks breathlessly to the camera.
Behind him, a young boy thought to be his son stands and watches before shouting into the camera.
The man was arrested by police shortly after fleeing the scene in Mühlacker on Friday, the chief prosecutor in the case said.
In the video, he attempts to justify the murder by saying he did it to send a message to women who irritate their husbands.
He warns: ‘This is how you’ll end’.
He and the boy believed to be his son also urge viewers to share the video.
The man had reportedly been kicked out of the home when he tried to visit his wife, from whom he was reportedly separated.
German newspapers reported that Abu Marwan has been separated from his wife, who earned custody of their three children.
The man alleged that the victim kicked him out when he attempted to visit her to resolve matters between them and unite the family.
A local newspaper concerned with Syrian refugees reported that Abu Marwan used to frequently call his ex-wife asking for money.
